Today I feel like talking about genres. I was talking to someone, and they asked what genres I read, and I had a super hard time answering the question. I know I like to read a lot of different books, but I didn’t realize how unrelated my preferred genres may seem.
What do I mean?
Well, I can easily say my favourite genre is adult sci-fi & fantasy, especially anything paranormal or urban fantasy. But I also really like cozy mysteries. And Tudor period historical fiction. And YA issue books intrigue me greatly.
There are times that nothing except an adult contemporary romance will feed my reading urge. Never YA contemporary romance though, that just annoys me. Actually, most YA annoys me because it often lacks a certain depth that I find in adult books. Don’t get me wrong, there are lots of YA books I love, but just sometimes, the drama in YA stories gets to me.
So does it sound a little confusing to you yet what I read? I usually sum it up as “a little of everything, as long as it’s not erotica or religious preaching” since that pretty much encompasses everything.
What about you? Do you read/blog about only certain genres, or are you a little reading genre crazy like me?
